As the 38th annual Independent Spirit Awards took place this past weekend in Santa Monica, California (having first been founded in 1984 to celebrate independent filmmakers), award show-goers saw films such “Everything Everywhere All at Once” “TÁR”, “Aftersun”, “Emily the Criminal”, “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed”, and more win in categories such as Best Cinematography, Best First Feature, Best First Screenplay, and Best Documentary.

Among the dazzling nominees, you would have found actress Lily McInerny, who was nominated for Best Breakthrough Performance for her role as Lea in the film, Palm Trees and Power Lines. Lucky for us, MINI V was right there with Lily as she got ready for the award show, decked out in head-to-toe CELINE by Hedi Slimane.

Check out Lily’s show diary below to see her glam process before attending the award show!

Hi MINI V! Thank you for getting ready with me for the Independent Spirit Awards :)” 

I woke up at the crack of dawn, much like in indie filmmaking. I took the longest shower of my life before completing a full skincare routine. I used a ‘Rebalancing’ face mask by Biologique Recherche that smells like actual garbage but leaves my skin even and glowy every time.

“Glam arrived at 8 A.M. for a 10:00 A.M. departure. I loved my hair and makeup and had the best time with Amber and Yasmin. I was so lucky to meet Yasmin through our mutual friend Isabel. She also did my makeup for the ‘Palm Trees and Power Lines’ premiere a few days earlier and we bonded over our love of Chanel and Ice Spice and Isabel.” 

“I was dressed by Celine and felt beautiful even if I couldn’t walk downstairs in my heels.”

“I was very lucky to have my friend Emilio in town to capture everything.”

I forgot to write a speech but that’s okay! I lost to the incredible Stephanie Hsu, the coolest way to lose anything ever.

“I love acting so much. It was a dream come true to be nominated alongside such incredible performers, all of whom inspired me with their films this year. ‘Palm Trees and Power Lines’ is in select theaters and on demand now! Thank you to everyone who has supported us this far.
